Webinar: Field notes for social change

Download

Advocacy and education are at the centre of our work. We work to empower our communities to take action and put pressure on decision-makers to make positive changes at a systemic level.

In this webinar, Raj Patel shares his lessons from the frontlines of the food justice movement. An award-winning writer, activist, and academic, Raj has worked for the World Bank and WTO, and protested against them around the world. His first book was Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System and his latest, The Value of Nothing, is a New York Times bestseller.

We asked where does social transformation come from? We explore successes and failures of the food movement around the world. We discuss how different actors — individuals, organizations, businesses and governments — have championed change. We’ll explore how social change actually happens: what strategies and tactics have worked? What does it mean to "vote with your fork"? 

Chapters:
